Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Energy Bites

Tasty chocolate chip peanut butter coconut no bake energy bites are the snack of the year! Take one (or five!) on the go as you go about your day or relax with a cup of coffee and one of these yummy treats!

Long title, I know. But I wanted you to know everything in these. They’re sooooo good. The best energy bites I’ve ever made, that’s for sure!

When I was pregnant last year, one of the things I absolutely loved was granola bars. I ate those for meals, as snacks and everything in between. Really, it became an obsession. I ate so many, I started making my own. I discovered energy bites and decided to give them a go.

As I was making these, I realized I could alter them in so many ways. It started as a base of peanut butter, honey and oats. Then I added chocolate chips because that makes everything better!

From there I’ve experimented with other flavors and textures. I’ve added ground flax seed, coconut flakes, vanilla and other things. A fun variation is to add mini M&Ms instead of chocolate chips. SO GOOD! I want to try these with pink and red mini M&Ms for a nice, healthy Valentine’s treat.

You can also turn these into lactation bites if you’re a nursing mom. Add 3 tablespoons of brewer’s yeast to up your milk supply and now you’ve got treats that you can claim just for yourself… no need to share!

A tried and true energy bites favorite…

I now eat these almost everyday when I’m running around the house keeping up with Grace. They live up to their name of energy bites, because boy do I need them! I love how refreshing they are since they’re kept cold. Mikey also loves to take these to work. Since he can’t really take breaks, he is able to pop one of these in his mouth and keep working. We love these around here!

I had an assistant for the first time after giving birth. This shoot was done with a little hand in all of the treats. Tell me if you think I should keep her on… she’s pretty cute if I do say so myself!

    I have to be honest, I’m still struggling with baking for my children 😀 then this recipe is perfect for me! So we can enjoy making it and eating all together!

  4. I simply love this recipe. It is so simple but sounds so delicious. I love no bake recipes (you can never burn them hehe). Can’t wait to try it!

    Wow, I love this. My luck is not too good into baking? so this one will best while having taste of my favorite peanut butter?

  7. Yummm. I love healthy little treats that are easy to make and easy to eat. Love your lactating mommy treat tip too. ❤️

  8. I love the smell of coconut in fact anytime I find a coconut candle I light it so to get the real deal smell + energy is a great score!

  9. These are awesome! I’ve made something similar to this as a preworkout snack so I could get a tiny extra push.

    1. Wow! Very easy to prepare…. Especially peanut butter & coconut combination is good idea… Sure I will try to make it today…

      1. Yes, it goes so well together since the peanut butter is creamy and the coconut gives it a slight crunch!

  10. Sometimes you just need something sweet and these will satisfy that craving. For those with nut allergies what would you recommend swapping the peanuts for or do they work well without?

    1. I haven’t personally tried it, but a couple of friends have tried swapping out the peanut butter with sunflower butter and said the texture remains the same. It really just needs something sticky like that to hold it all together!

    1. hahaha, I just recently discovered I love coconut and am trying so many new recipes and desserts with it!

  11. Can I just say HOW GOOD these look! If I made these and tried to stash them away for myself my children would sniff them out and steal them instantly!

  12. Cristina Petrini

    I can’t eat chocolate, but I have to say that everyone in the family asks me to prepare your cake!

  13. These look delicious! I love your tip for making them a mama’s only treat 😛 I think I might just have to prep these for after my baby’s arrival !

    1. Yeppp, no sharing! Hahaha. I’m due next week and also preparing a batch for myself 🙂 Congrats on your new baby!
